North of Botswana's Moremi National Park is a series of large floodplains dotted with small palm islands and interspersed with large forested areas. Here, the 94km2 (60,000-hectare) Vumbura Reserve – known for wonderfully varied and high densities of game – is home to the two adjacent camps that make up Vumbura Plains. Imagine a luxury hotel of contemporary, minimalist design, deep in the Delta, and you're nearly there.
Our view of Vumbura Plains
Vumbura Plains is not a typical bush lodge by any stretch of the imagination. Dubbed a premier camp by its owners, Wilderness Safaris, it is unlikely to appeal to someone who enjoys a more traditional safari camp. However, for someone who 'wants it all', it offers a very good game experience with exceptionally high standards of service, attention to individual needs (and delivering on them), excellent food and luxurious surroundings. While it isn't cheap, we think that this is a camp that delivers.
